At UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, we are proud of our history as a progressive institution that embraces diversity and innovation.
The UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School is Ireland’s leading business school and research centre. We offer a wide range of postgraduate business programmes that equip students to become the business leaders of the future.
Our success is down to an unwavering commitment to excellence. We are one of just 25 schools worldwide to hold triple accreditation from the US, Europe and the UK accrediting bodies.
At our Blackrock campus, close to the centre of Dublin city, we have superb facilities for postgraduate education and research. This makes UCD Smurfit a leader: not just in Ireland but in Europe; not just among Irish employers but among global multinationals and the world’s leading organisations; not just for high achievers in Ireland but for those from every country and every continent.
The success of UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School is due to our commitment to excellence.
The School is built upon an extraordinary leadership gift from Dr Michael WJ Smurfit. His generosity, and that of our patrons, sponsors, alumni and friends, has allowed us to maintain our position as one of the top European business schools.
At UCD Smurfit School, we have a wide range of programmes, including MBA, research programmes, specialist masters and executive education, which are designed to prepare graduates to face the challenges of the complex business world.
We have built strong relationships with international colleges, business school networks and associations and multinational corporations. These ties greatly benefit our graduates, who go on to build successful careers in every branch of business, industrial and professional life in Ireland and internationally. The School’s academics hold the highest qualifications from the world's leading universities and this, together with their business experience, enables them to create a stimulating environment both in teaching and research.
UCD Smurfit has a distinguished history as a leader in business education. We value our heritage and embrace our responsibility to maintain the highest standards and push the boundaries of what we can achieve.
At UCD Smurfit, we recognise that success depends on our ability to change and evolve. We have ambitious plans to develop a state-of-the-art business school that will act as a beacon of learning and research in the academic and business communities.
